Jeanne grew up in Cedar Heights and has lived near Conshohocken all her life.

She was a member of Cold Point Baptist Church and a former member of Spring Mill Baptist Church.

She also served Honorably in the US Navy Reserve from 1948 to 1952.

Jeanne was active in the Eastern Star organization for many years and was a past Worthy Matron (1988-89) of the Banner Chapter # 149 O. E. S. of Conshohocken.

She was a wonderful homemaker, who throughout most of her adult life, also worked for several well-known businesses in various key Administrative roles. 

Jeanne also had an adventurous streak.  After graduating from Conshohocken High School, she took a solo bus trip around the Country as far away as California.  She loved traveling and took many more trips around the Country.  One of her favorite things was taking her grandchildren on trips to Florida.  To everyone’s surprise, she also went on a whitewater rafting trip on the New River in West Virginia when she was in her 60’s!

In addition to traveling, Jeanne also enjoyed many activities such as: bowling, cooking, baking, seamstress, and bingo as a social event.  However, the one activity she enjoyed most throughout her life was gardening.  From a young age until recently she was always working with plants in the garden outdoors or potted plants indoors.

One of the benefits Jeanne enjoyed after retirement was being a Snowbird.  She would spend the Winters, and sometimes extending through the Spring, in Florida while staying with her son away from the cold weather. 

In addition to her worldly activities, Jeanne was a great believer in God and Church.  She maintained her faith her entire life.  She also introduced her children and grandchildren to God at an early age.

She will be greatly missed by many people including her family and friends.
